Forum: GratefulDead Subject: New Digital Download(3/26/81) from Garcia Store(plus T-shirt)

This info just came up on the Garcia Facebook page:

This Is No April Fools Joke, There's More To This Black T-Shirt Than Meets The Eye: http://bit.ly/TheJerryT

We’ve all seen it. We’ve grown accustomed to it. We’ve even feigned shock when it didn’t make it to the stage. Jerry’s infamous black Fruit of the Loom pocket t-shirt can now be part of your wardrobe too. We’ve dubbed this t-shirt “Tour Veteran” for the number of shows its seen, but there is more to this 100% cotton shirt than meets the eye. The shirt’s label has been removed and replaced with a Keystone era Jerry illustration screen-printed in grey. The best part? Each t-shirt arrives with a flashback-inducing download card in the pocket which grants access to a special GarciaLive digital-only archival release. Don’t bother testing the wares, we didn’t take it that far…

We’ve dug into the Garcia Vault and selected the Jerry Garcia Band’s first public performance at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre on March 26th, 1981. Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh replaces Garcia Band mainstay John Kahn on bass for the evening. Melvin Seals (organ), Jimmy Warren (electric piano, clavinet), Daoud Shaw (drums), Essra Mohawk (vocals) and Liz Stires (vocals) round out the evening’s line-up. The Garcia Vault contains only the evening’s second set, but we found the band’s performance too compelling to let an incomplete show keep an otherwise stellar recording from release. The five song set features “Mission in the Rain,” “Harder They Come,” “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and “Dear Prudence” segueing directly into the show closing “Midnight Moonlight.”

This first digital-only release has been mastered for release by longtime Garcia collaborator Joe Gastwirt and delivered in uncompressed WAV format.

This 100% cotton t-shirt will be available for purchase in the Official Garcia Store beginning today for ONE WEEK only. It may be April Fools, but we’re not pulling any pranks. Don’t miss out.

Wow.....Well the show definately looks intriguing, as it is not listed anywhere that I can see. I'll go ahead and pass on that t-shirt, but the show I am definately interested in(if this is for real).

It(shirt and D/L coupon) is listed on his facebook page, so I suppose we shall see.....


EDIT - This has to be bullshit. They were in London on the 24th and Essen on the 28th.

Seems strange to me.......The Dead were in Europe for all of March 1981.

Yeah, it seems like they screwed up the date. It should really be 6/26/81(not 3/26/81).

It now says June 26th.

Nevertheless, unless this is a joke, it seems we'll have to buy the t-shirt to get access to the show. Surely not? That's ridiculous. They'll lose sales on this if that's what they stick with.
